Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5520-5908 Notebook ?
Acer Aspire 5520 would not proceed to boot up
\015 Computer was left on to drain battery.\015\012After recharging, when powered up, the HDD light is on Steady for a long time then dies down after 1 minute. \015\012\015\012No indications of proper system booting such as Auto turn-on of Wifi, nor do the wiFi and bluetooth buttons respond during this phase. \015\012\015\012essentially the computer hangs.\015\012\015\012Haver tried powering using AC and battery, the results are the same.\015\012\015\012Is there a sequence of steps I can take so I can isolate the problem if it is the mobo, processor or the HDD contributing to the problem?\015
Tried replacing the memory. It worked for me. I tried removing battery, harddrive etc. Same thing: briefly power light on and fan on and then both off.
In this case need to reball Nvidia bridge. In some cases help short heating Nvidia bridge (don't forget use soldering fluid for SMT)

I have an ACER notebook Aspire 4920 and, I think, because an update I installed (prompted I may add by my laptop!) it is now not working. When I turn it on it goes into Startup Repair mode and then tells me it can't fix the problem automatically. It then gives me the options to either: System Restore (not actually an option as when I go on it it tells me I can't do this!), Windows Complete PC restore (which i can't do as have no Backup), Windows Memory restore, or command prompt.
